    Gm is sometimes mickey mouse. There is no v8 556hp v. So why is it on their website

    I'm happy with my 2013 CTS-V but not very happy with General Motors. There presently is no 6.2 liter v8 for 2014 so why did they post it on their website and make it look like you can buy the high output V8. Why would they even call the 2014 a V when its nothing close to previous editions. They cheapen the brand and they cheapen themselves by doing this. No wonder the Germans are always considered as above them in quality and everything else. No class and plain stupid.

    You can buy a 2014 V with a V8 and 556hp. It's still the Gen 2. The Gen 3 has not been announced yet.

    No that is not true. There is no 2014 v8. The factory does not make a V8. Its a v6 turbo.

    Sorry OP, but spearfish is correct. The 2014 CTS-V is a continuation of the second generation CTS-V. The builds are winding down as the new third generation CTS production starts. The third generation CTS-V has not been announced yet. You can ALSO buy a CTS-V Sport with the twin turbo V6.

    In short, you can buy BOTH a 556 hp V8 AND a TTV6 for 2014.

    Confusing? For noobies, yes.

    For those who want a brand new 2G CTS-V, your time is running out.

    I'm quoting this so you can't come back and edit later. No class and stupid? Wonder who that applies to??

    You have 14 posts. Sit back and learn something before spewing "facts" you can't back up. We are here to learn from each other. Join in. Plenty of folks here who have been in the V game a long time.

    Like buying a manual and then being mad at GM for saying it was just as fast in the quarter-mile when the top time ever might have been posted by an automatic? Yeah.

    OP, don't lead with anger.

    If there's a shred of respect to be had, hopefully the latter. We shall see. Plus, Jim has the other base covered.

    I had to explain the Gen 2/gen 3 thing last week to a friend of mine who is not a V guy but who has an MBA. He had trouble understanding the financial aspects of keeping the Gen 2 alive for the low volume V, but he understood the concept of the "halo" or branding benefits of having a V series (not a diluted Vsport) available. Especially in view of the fact that the Gen 2 is.....awesome. I'm sure that the Gen 3 will be awesome, too, but the differences between the Gen 2 and Gen 3 CTS are much more subtle (IMO) than between the Gen 1 and Gen 2.
